It’s the challenge of our generation. But is it too late? So many of us have joined the establishment. We were duped into thinking a college degree meant something. We’ve been tricked into debt, justifying it as an investment in our futures. Now, most young people feel that they have to join the “real world”, sign […]
I’m currently homeless. It’s really not a good look when women ask me where I live. I’ve set foot in six countries so far this year and it’s only January 10th. Wtf, I ask myself? How do I stay sane? How can I create a home away from home that keeps me grounded, healthy, productive, and […]

Hey guys, as most of you know by now, my mission is to help young people build strong foundations for their lives. What we learn in school, memorizing all those facts, are the basics for academics… but the truth is, our education system doesn’t have a lot of bearing on how well we will do in […]
I know what you’re thinking: “Oh great, another what I learned traveling the world, detached from real life” post. At this point, we’ve heard all the cliches: “travel changes you,” “helps you seek new perspectives,” “gets you out of your comfort zone…” But here’s the truth: For centuries, man has had incredible curiosity and desire […]
